The Offbeat Life Lessons of LDW


So, what is Life Done Write all about? Providing a somewhat unorthodox view on how to attain happiness.

When it comes to finding happiness and getting better at living the good life, a lot of people give up. They tell themselves that things didn’t turn out the way they’d planned, that nothing ever gets better, that they have no control over their health, and that maybe they just weren’t meant to be happy.

Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Everyone feels dissatisfaction at some point or another. How they cope with it, however, makes the difference between embracing a lifestyle of happiness and keeping it at bay. 

At Life Done Write, you’ll learn how to:

  • Find a more stable sense of contentment.
  • Ask the questions that really matter.
  • Live on your own terms.
  • Improve your physical and mental health.
  • Learn how to be a more effective writer.
  • Look at your career in a more proactive light.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Move toward the future and appreciate the present rather than dwelling on the past.

Basically, Life Done Write is all about sharing information on how to build a more joyous existence.

What do I mean by “unorthodox”?

A lot of what you read here will deal with more traditional topics like the benefits of jumping rope or how to be more romantic. Others, however, will be a bit more offbeat – the benefits of taking hallucinogens, for example, or how madness can be a tool for personal growth. These aren’t the types of concepts you’ll see discussed on most self improvement websites. But the journey toward increased life satisfaction has many routes, and not all of them are as oft-followed as others.

At a certain point, each of us has to decide whether we are going to take the practical and actionable (and, admittedly, sometimes less practical) steps that lead toward happiness, or if we’re going to continue following the path that led us to confusion, dissatisfaction, and poor health.

The hard part is knowing where to begin. Life Done Write was created to provide a nudge in the right direction.

Happiness isn’t “out there” waiting for you. It’s with you right now in this very moment, so close, in fact, that you can’t even see it. It’s a bit like trying to see the back of your own head.

Don’t be discouraged! The fact that you’re here shows that you’re ready for a change, and the willingness to embrace change for the better is the first step.

So let’s get started. Where? How about with one of these fourteen actions that can improve your mood and make you happier right now.
